Buyer BEWARE

Scams and Paid Reviews for Bartending Schools are a growing problem and potential students should be aware.

Owner of SCBS is a Former Fullerton College Professor, 15 year bartending veteran, active dog rescuer and was recently the Concept Manager for Rock and Reillys at LAX. Integrity is #1 for us. Just because our school was founded and built on principles of professionalism, honesty and expert bar knowledge does not mean they all are. SCBS is only one school among dozens. We worked extremely hard to offer the absolute best, most through and professional course available. We have earned the highest reviews in the state of CA but are battling the National Bartending School chains countless fake 5-star reviews. National bartending schools admittedly pay companies for reviews using what they call a “Reputation Management Company.” Fake Paid reviews are easy to spot, please see the video below for examples.
